Rich retires as firefighter to fight for Morgan Hill
After 24 years as a fire fighter with the San Jose Fire Department, Rich Constantine has announced his impending retirement from the department in January. Rich committed to devote himself full time to the Mayor's job. The announcement came at his campaign kickoff for Mayor. At the event he noted:
"Working along side my brothers and sisters who put their lives on the line every day reminds me of the importance of teamwork, of helping others, of duty and of sacrifice. Those are qualities I plan to bring to my work as Mayor. But as much as my work has meant to me I believe the job of Mayor needs to be a full time commitment. The work ahead will be boundless and it requires all the attention and focus I can bring to the role. So it is with that in mind that today I announce my retirement from the SJFD. Today I turn my attention full time toward the work ahead right here in Morgan Hill. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get down to it."
